- Mandisa Premieres New Song “Unfinished”
- American gospel and contemporary Christian singer Mandisa has delivered a new song "Unfinished" via Spotify. The song is the lead single from her upcoming fifth studio album "Out of the Darkness", which is due out on May 19, 2017.
The new album will be released for the first time in four years. Her last album "Overcomer" won the Best Contemporary Christian Music Album at the 56th Grammy Awards.
Mandisa is known as a contestant in the fifth season of American Idol in 2006, where she finished at nine place. Afterward, she released a debut album "True Beauty" in 2007. The album debuted at No.1 on the Top Christian Albums charts, making it the first time a new female artist has debuted at No. 1 in the chart's 27-year history.
Since then, she has released three studio albums, including one Christmas album, and one EP.
She wrote about the song on her blog page;
"I’ve been thinking about the importance of the message in my latest song. I beat myself up … a lot. I would never talk to anyone the way I speak to myself sometimes. Ask me what my best qualities are and it would take me a long time to compile a list. But ask me what I don’t like about myself and buckle up, because I can rattle off that list in 3.5 seconds flat! I know I’m not alone in that harmful habit. I believe it is time for the children of God to stop wallowing in shame and regret, and start living lives of freedom, power, and authority. We do that by taking those destructive thoughts captive, and making them obedient to Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5)."
